Ebbett Volkswagen Taupo Dealership

Here at Ebbett Volkswagen Taupo we are passionate about our vehicles. With a strong history behind it, Volkswagen has come a long way from designing the original Beetle in 1931 to the fuel-saving BlueMotion technologies that are developed in their modern vehicles.

Here on Ruapehu Street in Taupo, we’re proud to offer the full range – from the legendary Golf to the ground-breaking Touareg SUV. We appreciate how important it is for us to find out what you want/need out of a vehicle, so that we can offer you the best solution possible. Whether you are after cutting edge technology, lists of features or incredible value, you can trust us to find you the perfect Volkswagen for you.

For us it’s not a one-off transactional experience with our customers, we are here to look after your vehicle with our aftersales service too. Our experienced and qualified Volkswagen technicians will have your vehicle servicing and car repair needs covered.

“I was always under the impression that taking your car to an agent will be horrible and would cost an arm and a leg. Man was I wrong. Carl and his team have been exceptional. Service was incredible and they kept me in the loop the whole time. Will be back in the future.”


“Great cars, nice coffee, great service.”


“Superb customer service from the service department and a new loan car for the day.”


“Very friendly service from all departments.”
